Default Looking for instructions, remove headlight assy, 99 A6 Quattro

We just became owners of a 1999 Audi A6 Quattro, 2.8
The right front headlight is foggy and looks terrible. We purchased a new headlight assembly and now cannot remove the old one. Any suggestions? We have removed the 2 top screws and the one long screw towards the motor side and still the unit cannot be removed.

theres probably some other screws in the compartment down below.
also, there may be some caps covering the screws

btw, the foggy headlamp, will probably return, they have a problem with that, and they dont care unless ther is OBVIOUS cracks, fyi
